  • One Great Hour of Sharing

    One Great Hour of Sharing will be taken each of the remaining Sundays in July.

    Starting this Sunday (07/12) at Crainville Baptist Church we will begin our special offering “One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS)). Envelopes will be in the pew racks. 

    Emphasis is on COVID-19 RECOVERY: Renewing Hope and Service, a One Great Hour of Sharing initiative to aid those affected by the coronavirus in the United States and Puerto Rico. 

    Please pray about your contribution.

    Those who are not yet attending services in person may deliver their OGHS offering to the church office during its regular hours.  Place in an envelope and address it OGHS offering.  

    Thank you from your Mission Committee.

    "I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink..."  Matthew  25:35

  • Regarding easing of building use restrictions

    On June 28, 2020

    The deacons met Sunday, June 28, 2020 to discuss what Illinois moving into Phase Four meant for our congregation.  The following three motions in red were made and passed after much discussion with what we want to do and what it is morally and ethically safe and right to do at this point.

    “At this particular time we are going to commence church service July 5th and postpone in person Sunday School until further notice.” Passed by unanimous voice vote.  (For at least July 5th there will be no nursery nor Junior Church.  Please watch announcements for any change to this.)

    “The Sunday morning worship times are 9:00am and 11:00am. High-risk individuals are encouraged to attend at 9:00.”  Passed by unanimous voice vote.

    The facilities will be cleaned (disinfected) between the services. Offering plates will be placed by each exit (front doors and the door by the piano.) On communion Sundays, the elements will be placed in the cup holders in the pews prior to the service.

    “That the ushers be asked to seat people on arrival, maintaining groups six feet apart and minimizing instances of people passing close by one another.” Passed by unanimous voice vote.

    Other details discussed and agreed upon about the worship service: Participants entering the building will have their temperature taken before entering, a mask provided for them if they did not bring their own and it will be expected to be worn at all times during the service except while taking communion. Singing will be very limited. The order of worship and the list of prayer requests will be projected on the wall. Caution will be given about what should be given during prayer requests as the service will be live streamed to anyone tuning in.
